Jack Taylor joined the 59 News team in June 2020 as a Multimedia journalist, and is excited to tell the stories of the area!
Jack grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina with his father, a reporter turned pastor, his mother, a physician, and his two younger brothers. Jack realized that he did not want to follow in his parents’ current professions and has pursued a career in journalism since high school.
Jack attended the University of South Carolina where he could pursue a career in journalism, enjoy all the benefits of SEC athletics and be less than two hours from his family
Over the summer, he interned at Seacrest Studios and at ESPN radio in Charlotte. At USC Jack produced and co-hosted his own sports talk show through student media, interviewing Gamecock legends and alumni, which helped increase his love for broadcast journalism.
When he is not on the job, Jack spends his time as an avid fan of the Carolina Panthers, Marvel Comics and classic rock. Jack spent his childhood travelling to Beckley to ski at the Winterplace Ski Resort and is excited to relive those memories!
